How Cancer Grows By Parasitically Altering Its Host's Gut Microbiome

A compelling new study is comparing cancer cell populations to parasites, describing how it can alter the body’s ability to metabolize glucose to create more energy sources that help tumors grow. One of those strategies involves reducing a type of gut bacteria that keeps blood glucose levels in check. Several studies have revealed a variety of observational […]
